Fast casual Tex-Mex restaurant franchise Capital Tacos has signed its first franchise agreement for the US state of New Jersey.

The agreement was signed by two brothers, Parth and Yash Patel, who are New Jersey natives.

Going forward, the duo also intends to open additional Capital Tacos locations in the surrounding communities.

Parth said: “Our current goal is to find the right home for Capital Tacos in New Jersey. Although we haven’t made any final decisions, we’re particularly drawn to real estate options in Middlesex County.

“We’re hopeful we can find the proper real estate and begin the buildout process as quickly as possible to stay on track for an opening in the early months of 2024.”

The new agreement aligns with Capital Tacos’ plans to expand the brand’s footprint into new markets nationwide.

In early 2022, the restaurant brand launched its franchise programme. The company has since expanded its presence far beyond its Tampa home base.

It expanded its brick-and-mortar restaurant footprint by opening or planning to open developments in Atlanta, Charlotte, Denver, Tulsa, New Jersey and markets throughout Florida.

Capital Tacos co-founder Josh Luger said: “We couldn’t be more excited to expand Capital Tacos into the Northeast. More specifically, into the Middlesex County area.

“Both Yash and Parth will make excellent additions to our franchise family and their hope to continue building the brand’s footprint in the state is core to the fabric of making our one-of-a-kind flavours and menu available to the masses.”

In June this year, Capital Tacos unveiled its plan to open a new restaurant in Jacksonville, Florida.

For this location, the brand engaged two local and experienced restaurateurs. It plans to open the new restaurant later this year or early next year.
